Articles in Press



Effective with manuscripts submitted for publication on or after November 1, 2017, Osteoarthritis and Cartilage is instituting an accepted article fee. The corresponding author of an accepted manuscript will be emailed a link once the article has been accepted enabling them to make the payment of $US400 prior to receiving the page proof. [Note: the accepted article fee applies only to ACCEPTED manuscripts] A DOI number will be assigned when the funds have been received and the article has moved into production. Individual waiver requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis and may be granted in cases of genuine need. Priority for this waiver program will be given to applications by authors from countries eligible for the Research4Life program. Open access article charges are still in effect but are inclusive of the accepted article fee. That is, authors opting for open access will not be asked to pay the accepted article fee. Please contact Ms. Tanya Wheatley ([email protected]) if you have any questions.
